8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Video

Most latest compact cameras do not support Full HD video. The DSC-QX10-B is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD video.

We compared this camera to all the other cameras with a Full HD video and we think the Rollei Sportsline 85[plb_3359080_price] is also worth considering.
